Hmm. I wonder if this book will push the idea that power always needs to be taken that everything needs to be a revolution because the ones who hold said power would never consider sharing it on their own no matter how enlightened they gradually become.

Suffragism & the Great War

Join Dr. Vivien Newman, arm in arm with some of the formidable women of the pre-First World War suffrage and anti-suffrage movements as, on the declaration of war, they turn their considerable skills – honed over 50 years of active campaigning – to both support of the war and the pursuit of peace. Get to know how these women could bend politicians' wills to their own, challenge and break the many role-norms of contemporary patriarchal society, raise hundreds of thousands of pounds in voluntary contributions, and help convince the U.S. public to join the Allied cause.

This book explodes many myths, including the simplistic idea that it was women's war service alone which led to their partial enfranchisement in 1918 as some form of reward from a grateful nation. Vivien Newman reveals a social tapestry which is both complex and infinitely fascinating, one of old friendships broken and new ones formed, shifting alliances and bitter rivalries, of loyalties and even betrayals.
